Book Blogger Hop 7/9


Each weekend, Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop.  I've missed participating in the last few weeks because of vacation and just plain busyness.  The Book Blogger Hop is a great way for book lovers and book bloggers to come together and discover new book blogs.

Recently Jennifer added a question to the Hop so we can get to know our fellow book bloggers better.  This week's question is:  Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

This one is hard for me because I have so many favorite authors!  Right now I absolutely love Patricia Briggs because her world building is so complete, the characters have depth, and the stories are fast paced.  Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series has lots of action but includes humor at times as well.  Kelley Armstrong and Kim Harrison are also favorites because they focus on strong female characters.

If you have hopped over from the Mr. Linky, Welcome!  I hope you will stay a bit and look around. I review a wide range of books including (but not limited to!) urban fantasy, young adult, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, chic lit, cozy mystery, and some non-fiction.  My monthly giveaway for July just started so you will want to check that out and see if anything interests you.
